Pros AMAZING screen. fujitsu reliability. whoevever left the comment that "overall, juitsu laptops are piece of shi*s" doesn't know what he/she is talking about. first off, learn how to spell the name. F-U-J-I-T-S-U. second, fujitsu always ranks very highl
Cons could have a better graphics card. definitely would have been better with a WSXGA screen.
Pros Excellent value on paper
Cons Ruined by some difficult flaws
Summary Browsing reviews won't tell you about two critical issues with this laptop, which is otherwise excellent.
First, its wireless chipset, Intel 2200BG, has major problems with a number of wireless access points (including Linksys models.) Do a google search on "2200BG problems" to see what I mean. There's no fix as of yet.
Second, the touchpad is subpar. Rarely does one think about the touchpad since it's always always a Synaptics model and just fine. This laptop includes an Alps touchpad with a driver offers only basic functionality: no edge motion, edge scroll that barely works, and poor overall sensitivity.
Combine these two problems and you can end up being very frustrated very quickly! It's too bad that Fujitsu can't get together fixes for these issues.
Pros This is one of the best looking laptops I've seen. It's got style and one solid overall design. The addition of the latest Sonoma Centrino platform and a built in TV tuner make this machine highly functionable. It's also just the right size.
Cons The X300 graphics card absolutely ruins this machine. It falls flat on its face when trying to play current games. That and the low 1280x800 resolution does too. Fujitsu, what were you thinking? A multimedia powerhouse needs good graphics such as the X700
Pros Fujitsu has this game down. A 15 inch screen isn't so much of a bad thing - at least you can carry it around without that much diffuclty. All the power and punch in a smaller size - count me in.
Pros Get more for what you pay.
Cons Not really, but if you get this, customize it with DVD burner already.
Summary Great appeal, features, accesibility, warranty and service from fujitsu. If you want to buy quality for a reasonable price, something unique...dont buy ford, chevy or nissan, buy this Japanese-German baby, you wont regret it...Fujitsu is getting better and better everyday, I am surprise not many people know them, but thats ok, as well as Panasonic computers, they rock.
